IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi discussed issues of shared concern with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley by phone on Wednesday.

The two “who worked side by side in their previous roles, discussed security issues, regional developments in the Middle East, and the deep and long-standing collaboration between the armies,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.

Milley was sworn in to his new role on Monday.

Kochavi, the statement continued, congratulated Milley on assuming his new position and the two agreed to meet at a later date.

“During the introductory call, the two leaders discussed several issues of mutual concern,” read a statement released by Milley’s office, adding that he “reaffirmed the US commitment to its relationship with Israel.”

“The US and Israel enjoy a strong military-to-military relationship as key partners committed to peace and security in the Middle East region,” the statement said.
